For those of you who have followed September Blue for the past few years, do you remember this?:
Several years ago I created this piece of subway art as a gift for my husband. This canvas gallery wrap lists all of the addresses we lived at over the years as a military family. It hangs right inside our front door. Believe me when I tell you that it is a conversation starter whenever someone walks into the house.
I loved creating that piece. And it got me thinking: What other "subway-art-esque" designs could I create that would appeal not only to my followers and customers here at September Blue, but to those in our local area as well? Living on Florida's Gulf Coast and spending time sailing in Tampa Bay gave me an "ah-ha" moment:
Personalized GPS prints.
Subway art prints with your home address translated as GPS coordinates! Pretty cool, huh? And it doesn't have to be your home address! Do you have a favorite vacation spot? Want to remember the location where you got engaged, graduated from college or where your child was born? Any address can be converted into it's GPS coordinates and preserved as a fine art print or canvas gallery wrap!
My new shop, Coastal Canvas & Prints, is now open and ready to take orders! I have several designs and a large color palette to choose from and they are available as a fine art print or canvas gallery wrap. More designs are coming soon!

Want to see a few printed examples? Keep on scrolling! I had a few canvas wraps of our home address printed as samples. A friend of mine saw them and ordered two for her new home! The canvas gallery wraps are printed on premium, heavy-weight artist canvas and stretched around a .75" thick wooden frame. They are available in 8x10, 11x14 or 18x24 dimensions.
And here are a few designs on fine artist's paper. Flat prints are printed on 100% cotton fiber, cold press, acid-free, fine art paper and are available in 8x10 or 11x14.
